Heart of Maguuma is a region west of the Tarnished Coast, just beyond Rata Sum. It contains the thickest forested parts of the Maguuma Jungle and is the longtime home of the Quetzal tengu and Itzel hylek who still live there today. In the past 200 years, it has seen the emergence of new groups and species to its local inhabitants, such as the Exalted, Nuhoch hylek, and Chak. It was also once the home of druids and the asuran city of Rata Novus. In the past couple years, it has largely become overgrown by Mordremoth's corruption and minions.

Malyck, a sylvari that was not born from the Pale Tree, originated from the direction of the Heart of Maguuma, indicating a second 'Pale Tree' in the region. So far no evidence of Malyck's tree has been found, though there are five Blighting Trees seen, and given the description for Malyck's tree's location it is possible that it is east of Tangled Depths.

  • Guild halls in this region can be accessed by all players regardless of expansion ownership, so long as they are members of a guild that has a guild hall.
  • Ember Bay is apparently considered as part of this area since its lumber count towards the Daily Heart of Maguuma Lumberer achievement.
